Our members who joined APC caused our downfall in 2023 – PDP

 Abia State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has
said that it is not bothered by the defection of some of its members to the
rival All Progressives Congress, APC.


It said the defectors realized that they were no longer
useful to the PDP.


The party has also disclosed that most of those leaving the
party were responsible for the “brief downturn” the umbrella party suffered in
Abia during the 2023 polls.


These assertions were made by the Abia PDP through a press
release signed by Abraham Amah, the Vice Chairman/acting Publicity Secretary on


He said the attention of the Abia PDP was drawn to the news
of the defection of ‘a very few’ members of the PDP in Abia State to the APC.


The PDP further declared that it has received many
applications from people who are desirous of joining it in Abia, boasting that
the defection was a blessing in disguise.


“The Abia PDP truly appreciates the exit of these men
because after the 2023 general elections, the Abia PDP did a post-mortem on
itself and came to the inevitable conclusion that the Party needs to reinvent
itself for the future and that the only way for that to happen would be for the
party to shed weight not by expelling some people but for those responsible for
its brief downturn to exit by themselves.


“That is exactly what has happened and the Abia PDP truly
appreciates their exit after they recognised that they were no longer useful to
the party in whatsoever form,” it stated.


Recall that former Chief of Staff to ex-governor Okezie
Ikpeazu, Anthony Agbazuere, former Commissioner for Information and Strategy,
Eze Chikanmayo and many other top members of the PDP, on Monday, joined the APC
in a move that shook the Abia political space.
